Mainland to Oahu Transport
The best option from the mainland is to coordinate with freight company operating out of Long Beach Port. The event works with both H2O Logistics and ALOHA Freight. Transit is typically 7 days with a will call option in Honolulu. Pack your bag as if you were traveling by air and make sure the board is well ventilated. We recommend bubble wrap and a padded board bag (or a box!). Be sure to open an airway also for your board to breath! YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR GETTING YOUR BOARD TO MOLOKAI. Most escort Boat Captains are available to carry your board to race start. You will need to have your board there early in the week of July 15 at the latest.
Maui Board Transport
By boat – the Maui – Molokai ferry will not take boards. There are several boats with racks that can take boards to Molokai. Boards will need to be delivered on Friday before the race in Maui. Please contact John (Johnny Mac) MaCandlis at 808-281-6285. Johnny for reservation and pricing. The boards shipped from Maui will be delivered to Kalua Koi on Saturday, July 23rd. To get you board from the dock to Kalua Koi please contact Clare at Molokai Outdoors.
If you are racing the Maui to Molokai race we do have the ability to store boards on Molokai for the race.
Oahu Board Transport
There will not be a trailer shipped from Oahu to Molokai. It is recommended you send it on your escort boat. If your escort boat does not have the capabilities to transport your board safely, you can contact John (LJ) Benson at firstname.lastname@example.org, LJ Benson has boats that have the capability to transport your board to the race sight safely, coordination will have to be done by the racers and LJ.
BY BOAT – If your escort boat will not take your board (most won’t) there are a few captains that can are set up to take boards. These boats have racks so your board should be safe, but, if it is sun sensitive, it should be bagged. The boards will usually be dropped off at the beach near the Kaluakoi on Saturday, so you need to be sure to arrange the meeting time with the captain.
